"Ingram Micro's high-energy Night of Solutions event captures the best-of-the-best in business networking and live product demonstrations," says Don Vargo, Vice President of Business Development for Illinois-based solution provider, Tympani, Inc. "What's great is Night of Solutions focuses in on forging new relationships, strengthening existing partnerships, and learning about new and emerging technology solutions that are really important to our clients and help fill a void within our portfolio. It's an event we just don't miss."
Exclusive to Ingram Micro solution providers and manufacturers, Ingram Micro's Night of Solutions takes place approximately once a quarter in varying cities throughout the U.S. In 2008, Ingram Micro's Night of Solutions events were held in New York City, Minneapolis and most recently Chicago. Live product demonstrations and emerging technology displays illuminate the event, presenting an ideal setting for in-depth business discussions and knowledge-sharing. Throughout the evening Ingram Micro's partners and manufacturers are treated to great samplings of food and beverages, as well as live entertainment and interactive activities such as casino tables and raffles.
"From a vendor perspective, Night of Solutions is a first class ticket to networking with many of the channel's most successful and aspiring solutions providers," says Michael Connolly, Client Director, IBM. "We've been a sponsoring manufacturer for two years and always walk away from this event impressed not only by the caliber of solution providers in attendance, but also the actionable conversations we have with them around how we can work together to meet their clients' needs."
Citrix's Senior Distribution Manager Douglas Wiener agrees calling Ingram Micro's Night of Solutions "a perfect venue to showcase Citrix's latest Virtualization solutions to a diverse group of VARs who cover all areas of IT."
Originated in 2006 by Ingram Micro's NY-based field sales team, Night of Solutions has become an industry standout. "From the get-go, our goal was to reward our channel partners with a top-of-the-line event that would allow them to network with manufacturers face-to-face while learning more about what technologies and IT solutions are gaining traction among small and mid-size businesses and enterprises," says Peter DiMarco, vice president and general manager, Ingram Micro Sales U.S. "We've really hit a home run with Night of Solutions and look forward to building upon its success in 2009 and finding ways to make it even more valuable to our channel partners and manufacturers."
